Central Coast Council has commenced a series of essential maintenance works across six skate parks throughout the region, including BATO Yard (Bateau Bay), Wadalba Skate Park, Picnic Point Skate Park (The Entrance), Banjo’s Skate Park (Terrigal), Narara Skate Park and Kariong Skate Park.

Council Director Community Services and Recreation, Melanie Smith said these works aim to ensure the safety and longevity of these popular community facilities for skaters of all ages and abilities.

“The works are scheduled to progressively roll out until July 2024 (weather permitting), and will require short-term closures at each location while works are underway,” Ms Smith said.

“The scope of the project will vary depending on the specific needs of each skate park. 

“Some examples of planned work include resurfacing ramps and bowls, repairing cracks and damaged concrete, replacing worn equipment like basketball hoops and nets, and applying fresh paint and coatings.”

The schedule (weather permitting), with temporary closures whilst works are underway, is:
•    Narara Skate Park – works anticipated to commence 13 June - 18 June 
•    Banjo’s Skate Park (Terrigal), works anticipated to commence 17 June - 21 June

•    Wadalba Skate Park - works are underway and expected to be completed around June 21
•    Bato Yard - Skate Park completion 14 June, however the Basketball court will be closed until 20 June 

Central Coast Council Administrator, Rik Hart emphasised the importance of the skate parks to the community and the benefits of these maintenance projects.

“These skate parks are well loved by our community and these essential maintenance works will ensure they remain safe and enjoyable for everyone to use,” Mr Hart said. 

“Council is committed to providing quality recreational facilities for our residents, and these upgrades will help to extend the lifespan of these skate parks for many years to come.

“By investing in these essential works, we can ensure that these community hubs continue to provide a safe and positive space for people of all ages and skills to enjoy skateboarding, BMX riding, scootering and rollerblading.”
